Founded in 2003, New York City-based Beck(y) is a collection of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind bags and accessories constructed with recycled skateboards and plush, high-end fabrics. It’s a clever combining of battered, discarded objects with pristine new materials.
Beck(y)’s aptly named sk8bags are handmade in a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that works at altering the skate decks as little as possible in an attempt to uphold the integrity of her source material. And to keep the recycled decks coming her way, and to give back to the skateboarding community at the same time, Beck established the Boards 4 Bowls program. For every used board she receives Beck donates $3 to a variety of non-profit organizations dedicated to building and maintaining public skateparks across the country.
